Alvarez targets super debut

Ricky Alvarez is looking forward to the Italian Super Cup Final between Inter and Milan.

The two teams meet in Beijing on Saturday and the summer signing from Velez could make his official debut for the Nerazzurri.

"It's a hugely important achievement for me to be playing for Inter and it's an honour to be representing the club in China," he stated.

"We're extremely determined. Inter and China together is a union to be respected, because this country deserves respect.

"I hope that Inter can do well in this Super Cup, in fact I'm sure they can and my teammates and I will do everything we can to achieve success here."

Alvarez looks like he's an ideal player for Coach Gian Piero Gasperini's 3-4-3 system, but he's not expecting a guaranteed starting shirt.

"I'm ready and available to serve the Coach and the team whenever I'm called upon," he concluded.
